The other day I was talking to a friend about how different this year had been for her since she started working her office job from home. She told me that she really missed her coworkers and was definitely getting fed up being stuck inside the house all the time, “but on the bright side,” she added, “at least when I’m on my period now I don’t have to deal with any idiots in person.”
That definitely made me stop and think. I mean, periods are so disruptive and annoying that not having to deal with their full force is like, almost making 2020 worthwhile? Absolutely wild. And clearly she’s not the only person who feels that way, as evidenced by these 10 great tweets about periods just being the worst.
10. Bless you
The struggle is real.

8. Ovary actions
This whole tweet is a wild ride start to finish.
I’m currently crying while sitting on my bed and eating watermelon cubes with a fork gripped in my hand prongs up like a child because I’m on my period and emotional about life and how much I love watermelon.
Ovaries are weird, man.

7. Stop. Grammar time.
I see what you did there.
Punctuation can really change a sentence. For example:
I'm on my way
I'm on my period

6. Murder mystery
How anyone can feel comfortable in a bathroom that doesn’t lock is beyond me.
I’m on my period. My 4 yr old just burst into the bathroom when I was using it and saw me, turned around and ran out, screaming
“DADDY! Mommy’s DYING!!!!”
Pros and cons.
CON- I think I scarred him for life
PRO- I think I can pee by myself for a few days

5. Kitty love
Ok but like how cute was the cat? That might also go a ways to explaining it.
I just looked at my cat, said “you’re my best friend bud” then started crying for some reason so I guess my period is almost here.

4. Growing pains
Kid, I have got some GREAT news for you.
The little boy I nanny, who is 8 years old, stepped off the bus today holding onto his hip with the weirdest look on his face and when I asked him what was wrong he responded, “I’ve been dreading this moment, but I think I’m finally starting my period” LMAO

2. Cat attack
It’s time to paws for reflection.
My cat just stepped on my period boobs and my life flashed before my eyes.

I’m sure everyone would be absolutely scandalized to learn that you have a uterus.
The cashier at CVS looked appalled when I told her I didn’t need a bag for my box of tampons.
Maybe I want people to know I’m on my period so they will leave me the fuck alone, SANDRA

I guess if there’s an incredibly faint silver lining to be found around the pitch black cloud that is 2020, it’s that when we’re feeling at our worst, we don’t have to put up with each others’ crap as much? And that’s something? So, take that periods. Gotcha.
What do you think about that theory?
